    Firstly, hello to all. I'm new to this so here goes... The story so far, 2005 A3 2.0 TDI 140 sport, sportback with all the toys, lovely car but started to have a problem with power. Car goes into limp mode when under load and can be reset by turning off/on, not entirely safe at 70mph but it works. I have checked the vacuum pipes and was able to operate the vane adjustment rod on the turbo full range by sucking (until my eyeballs popped). I have ran with the MAF disconnected but this is worse (no boost at all). I have also cleaned the sensor in the intercooler pipe and checked for other stuff, loose,split pipes, wires etc. Then second problem after checking and grubbing around all day yesterday I found today that the front washers and the rear wiper do not work. The fuses are ok. Pleeeeeeeeeeeease help.
